No UV rays in oxy/acetylene flame, only infrared and visible light. Are you sure your eyes didn't just get dried out from the heat? With oxy/acetylene welding, shaded glasses are only to block some of the visible light, but a lot of people don't bother with them for using a rosebud---there's no weld puddle you have to be able to see.

Even when setting the flame for cutting, you don't normally wear cutting goggles. I've seen a lot guys do good cuts without goggles but I have real trouble seeing what I'm doing and it really bothers my eyes. With a rosebud you're not usually staring right at the flame. You're watching the piece you're heating up and not melting it.
